God created Adam and Eve, and all the animals as vegetarians! All of the animals, including dinosaurs, eat plants.
But, what about those BIG, sharp teeth? Take T-Rex for example, certainly he was a meat eater.
Big, sharp teeth do not mean an animal is a meat eater. Bears have teeth that are big and sharp, similar to a lion's. Yet many bears are mostly vegetation
How do we get fossils?
The animal has to first die. That's rather obvious. When did death enter the world? Not until Genesis chapter three when Adam and Eve disobey God. So up until that time neither people nor animals died. So, based on the Bible, there could not be any bones to create fossils until after the fall.
What are most dinosaurs?
They are land animals.
When were all land animals created?
Day six. So on what day must dinosaurs have been created? On day six, the same day people were created.
That's interesting. Could it be the Bible is saying people lived with dinosaurs? Is there any evidence that people lived with dinosaurs? The answer to both of these questions is, "yes".
I don't even know what to say to that.

Years and years ago I used to be a creationist but luckily I never subscribed to the idea of the young earth. I tried to put myself in God's shoes in a sense, infinite, immortal, nothing to do with himself, why not spend the billions of years experimenting with different forms of life? The way I saw it God has been around, well, forever, infinite time both before him and in front of him, so limiting him to only being able to create life at the beginning of Genesis seemed stupid. Creationists are often quick to put limits on their supposedly infinite God.

See, now I the issue I have is with people trying to say, "The Earth was created 6,000+ years ago and here's the biblical support for it". I believe in the six days of creation (as described in Genesis), but when the Bible says Adam lived 900+ years or whatever and then he died, I want to know by what calendar Adam measured his years.
Let's face it, the calendar has changed how many times SINCE Christ? Therefore I think that, while the events in the BIble happened exactly as it says they did, I don't quite buy the time frame that the modern translation puts it in. Simply because I don't honestly know how many days Adam had in his "years".

Obviously "days" in the bible aren't literal dates...except every single time it "fits"

This isn't something specific to Adam.
All of the Generations of Adam thru to Noah, along with those created/recreated on the 6th yowm had extended lifespans. the thing that changed was the removal of the firmament which is addressed in the Account of the Noah's Flood.
These are the same periods of time we live in today. 360 Days or so per Year.
It is after the Flood that this Lifespan is reduced to some 120 Years. It is again reduced to 70 some odd years all due to the sinful way mankind acted with so much time on his hands.
These changes you are asking about are minor. Affixing periods of the year to incorperate say Julius or Augusta, does little to distract from the main thing. From one Winter Solstice to another is still a year. This would have been an important measure of time for someone who was a Farmer. When to plant and when to sow are key to Adam's survival.
I trust you get the point.
